Anuncio

Thomas Woodrow Wilson fue un político y abogado estadounidense, vigésimo octavo Presidente de los Estados Unidos, asumiendo el cargo desde 1913 a 1921. Llevó a cabo una política exterior intervencionista en Iberoamérica y neutral en la Gran Guerra hasta 1917. Su entrada en el bando denominado Triple Entente inclinó la victoria de este lado. En enero de 1918 expuso sus famosos catorce puntos para asegurar la paz en Europa y el mundo. Participó en la Conferencia de París y fue premio Nobel de la Paz en 1919 como impulsor de la Sociedad de Naciones.

„We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.“

— Woodrow Wilson

„If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.“

— Woodrow Wilson
Context: There are two beings who assess character instantly by looking into the eyes,—dogs and children. If a dog not naturally possessed of the devil will not come to you after he has looked you in the face, you ought to go home and examine your conscience; and if a little child, from any other reason than mere timidity, looks you in the face, and then draws back and will not come to your knee, go home and look deeper yet into your conscience. “[http://books.google.com/books?id=iu4nAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA310&dq=%22There+are+two+beings%22 Young People and the Church]“ (13 October 1904)<!--PWW 15:510-519,516--> Variant: If a dog will not come to you after he has looked you in the face, you ought to go home and examine your conscience.

„Open covenants of peace must be arrived at.“

— Woodrow Wilson
Context: 1. Open covenants of peace must be arrived at.

„There must be, not a balance of power, but a community of power; not organized rivalries, but an organized common peace.“

— Woodrow Wilson
Context: The question upon which the whole future peace and policy of the world depends is this: Is the present war a struggle for a just and secure peace, or only for a new balance of power? If it be only a struggle for a new balance of power, who will guarantee, who can guarantee, the stable equilibrium of the new arrangement? Only a tranquil Europe can be a stable Europe. There must be, not a balance of power, but a community of power; not organized rivalries, but an organized common peace. Address to the Senate (22 January 1917)

„Do you never stop to reflect just what it is that America stands for? If she stands for one thing more than another, it is for the sovereignty of self-governing peoples“

— Woodrow Wilson
Context: Do you never stop to reflect just what it is that America stands for? If she stands for one thing more than another, it is for the sovereignty of self-governing peoples, and her example, her assistance, her encouragement, has thrilled two continents in this Western World with all the fine impulses which have built up human liberty on both sides of the water. [http://books.google.com/books?id=-rIqAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA9-PA11&dq=PITTSBURGH Speech on Military Preparedness], Pittsburgh (29 January 1916)<!--PWW 36:28-33-->

„Let those beware who would take the shorter road of disorder and revolution. The right road is the road of justice and orderly process.“

— Woodrow Wilson
Context: There are those in this country who threaten direct action to force their will, upon a majority. Russia today, with its blood and terror, is a painful object lesson of the power of minorities. It makes little difference what minority it is; whether capital or labor, or any other class; no sort of privilege will ever be permitted to dominate this country. We are a partnership or nothing that is worth while. We are a democracy, where the majority are the masters, or all the hopes and purposes of the men who founded this government have been defeated and forgotten. In America there is but one way by which great reforms can be accomplished and the relief sought by classes obtained, and that is through the orderly processes of representative government. Those who would propose any other method of reform are enemies of this country. America will not be daunted by threats nor lose her composure or calmness in these distressing times. We can afford, in the midst of this day of passion and unrest, to be self - contained and sure. The instrument of all reform in America is the ballot. The road to economic and social reform in America is the straight road of justice to all classes and conditions of men. Men have but to follow this road to realize the full fruition of their objects and purposes. Let those beware who would take the shorter road of disorder and revolution. The right road is the road of justice and orderly process. [http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=29560#axzz2g0trF1OV Woodrow Wilson: "7th Annual Message", December 2, 1919. Online by Gerhard Peters and John T. Woolley, The American Presidency Project.]
